close one between C & E , but error in C injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth. is not rightly constructed..
Modifier type error :
option E is correct ;
Responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy, is rightly modified by the People’s Bank of China

further more ; cause and effect relation into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth
is rightly constructed..

The People’s Bank of China on Wednesday had injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth, responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy.

A) The People’s Bank of China on Wednesday had injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth, responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy.

"responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy.", this is a modifying entity which should modify people's bank of China. Always try to place the modifier as close to the modifying entity. Misplaced modifier error here. So this choice can be ELIMINATED.

B) The People’s Bank of China injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations on Wednesday in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth, responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy.

Same error as in option A. So this choice can be ELIMINATED.

C) The People’s Bank of China on Wednesday, responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy, injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth.

The modifier is placed close to Wednesday. Again misplaced modifier error. So this choice can be ELIMINATED.

D) Responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy, cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth was injected by the People’s Bank of China on Wednesday.

Here the modifier "Responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy" is modifying "cash worth $83 billion". It should modify People's Bank of China. So this choice can be ELIMINATED.

E) Responding to fears of a serious slowdown in the economy, the People’s Bank of China on Wednesday injected cash worth $83 billion into the economy through open market operations in order to boost bank lending and overall economic growth.

This is the best among the lot. The modifier correctly modifies People's Bank of China. This is the correct choice.
